Bissell CrossWave Cordless Max

Powerful cordless vacuum cleaner and washing machine in one


  • Cleans tough stains on hard floors
  • Excellent vacuum performance
  • Does a reasonable job on carpet

If you’re the ultimate in versatility and also want to handle the occasional rug, the Bissell CrossWave Cordless Max is the model for you. This updated cordless model has a 30-minute run time, which doesn’t sound like much, but the thick rollers and powerful suction mean you can tackle very hard floors.

In addition, this cleaner is certified for use on wet-washable carpets and rugs. You don’t get the full cleaning ability that a carpet cleaner gives you, but for regular maintenance, this model does a great job.

Hard floors are where this cleaner excels, tackling stubborn stains with ease, leaving a nice shiny floor at the end. Impressively, the CrossWave Cordless Max is also a decent vacuum in its own right, so you don’t need to vacuum first; in fact, the only thing you’ll need a regular vacuum for is getting into tight gaps and cleaning edges.

Easy controls on top let you choose the mode (carpet or hard floor) and there’s a trigger to push out cleaner when you want to use it, allowing you to control the amount of liquid: more for tough spots and less where the floor isn’t it’s not that dirty. When you’re done, there’s a self-cleaning mode, so there’s not a lot of cleaning to do.

Granted, this model is quite expensive, but if you want the flexibility of a wireless device without having to sacrifice power, this is a great choice.
